A transfer is pretty simple but if you work for me can we talk first?

Be very careful with ANY change to am H-1B. The current administration is playing all kinds of games and actively cutting visa durations. Just make sure you do your homework before you ask for or submit any changes.

The transfer isn’t bad, I did it a few years ago. Some companies will make you sign something to say you’ll stay with them for a certain time period or have to pay them back the legal cost of the transfer. From when I received the job offer to when the transfer got approved to allow me to resign from my job at the time it took about 2 months 😬

Our nanny takes my 7 month old out for one, sometimes 2, long walks every day (weather permitting).

She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks? Am I overreacting?

What does the Investor Relations career path look like for someone coming in at an early-ish level? I’ve heard it’s kind of dead-end and doesn’t really teach you any hard skills but pretty easy, especially if you can produce a decent track record of fundraising.

Anyone know people who took this path?
